But several sites says that the diesel wont be here until summer 2018. Why?

I just got an answer from Fords Mike Levine and in that he claims the diesel will be out at next spring, not next summer.

A long wait anyway.

At least we're still getting it. I heard that it'll be using the same 10-speed automatic transmission that's already in the Raptor. Think that's true?

I'v read Spring as well but they did mention "mid-year the latest". Knew it was going to utilize the 10-speed but I can't see why they wouldn't carry it over from the Raptor. Just makes sense for efficiency.
